ďThe mentoring work gives me a chance to tell them about my experiences and to encourage them to take school seriously,Ē said Fraguada, a senior at Scarborough High School in Houston.

 

Fraguada is accepted as one of UHVís FIRST 200 freshmen and said she learned about the university through a friend.

 

 ďI like that itís not that far from home, and itís less expensive than other schools,Ē she said.
